Winn Parish Retired Teachers met for their final meeting of the year on May 17 at Mr. and Mrs. Tommy Bankston’s home. There were 35-40 faithful members in attendance to enjoy a time of fellowship, food, and later an official meeting.

The men gathered around as the burgers were cooked and the ladies visited under the beautiful veranda. Homemade ice cream and several sweets were served for dessert. Everyone enjoyed time sharing stories and visiting before moving on to the business of the day.

After the reading of the minutes of the April meeting, Mr. Bankston went on to begin the process of electing the 2022-2024 officers. Those who will hold the positions are Melissa Trammell – President, Ethel Howell – Vice President, and Becky Brazzell – Secretary.

Outgoing President, Mr. Tommy Bankston said a few words about how much he has enjoyed his time as President and the friendships he has developed.
